Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle


In a tweet sent Saturday, Subway called the latest “allegation” about spokesperson Jared Fogle “appalling” if true.

Subway was tweeting in response to a story we broke Friday evening. Our own Hayley Petersonreported the following:

The FBI has subpoenaed an affidavit containing alleged texts between former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle and a former female Subway franchisee in which Fogle says he paid for sex with a 16-year-old girl, according to the former franchisee’s attorney.

The woman’s lawyer, who asked to remain anonymous, said the FBI recently subpoenaed his law office for the text-message conversations, which Business Insider has viewed.

In the messages, Fogle repeatedly asks the woman — a Subway franchisee at the time — to advertise herself on Craigslist for sex with other men.

He asks her if he can watch the sexual acts and tells her she can make about $US500 per act.

In response, Subway tweeted this message Saturday: “The latest allegation about Jared Fogle, if true, is appalling. As previously stated, we have suspended our relationship with Jared.”
